Slow Art Day has a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at, and loving, art and objects. For this November edition of Slow Art Day, come to the Museum and get up close to a selection of items from our collection. You'll be captivated by colour and tantalised by texture and form. Meet with a curator, grab a cup of tea or coffee and talk about what you have discovered by looking slowly. Of course, you’re free to stray from the library and select your own objects to ponder too!
